Early Georgian spoon makers mark Thomas England?

Postby narpin99 » Thu Dec 01, 2011 7:41 am

Hello,

I have recently come into this Georgian table spoon. I think I have identified the marks as Thomas England, but I'm not sure, as it looks slightly different to the text books. It also has a monogram to the finial with 'RG 1780' which would make it too late for England. However the monogram could have been added later.

Thanks in advance.

Those are Exeter hallmarks, and made by Thomas Eustace of the same city. The date will be about 1780.
I'd love to see a photo of the whole spoon if you have one.
